Indian Summer CAL week 1 is out now for you to download on the Deramores website.
Eeee!!! It’s so exciting! In this first part of the pattern we’ll be making the three central squares.
The squares are Intermediate skill level as the pattern uses stitches worked in the horizontal bar to add some lovely texture. You can find the horizontal bar (also known as the third loop) at the back of stitches just below the back loop. I wrote a blog post about how to work in the horizontal bar recently so do check it out here if its a new technique to you. We’ll also be using lots of Front Post / Front Raised stitches to add even more lovely texture!
The pattern is packed full of photos to help you along but if you find yourself a bit stumped just get in touch.
Share your progress on the Deramores: The Projects facebook page and if you are posting online use the hashtag #GoTeamIndianSummer. We just can’t wait to see your photos!!! You can also add your projects to Ravelry here – pattern on the Ravelry database.
